What Do You Think About the Emailed Running Mileage Stats

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

So what do you think about the running mileage stats that get emailed to you once a week. We missed a week or two there of getting those out to you as we are still developing the infrastructure to send them out once a week to you (there’s quite a few of you running signed up with us out there :).

Do you have any suggestions or comments about the stats? We are going to try and set this up so it will automatically be sent on either Monday or Tuesday of the week. So you’ll get last week’s totals and stats at the beginning of the week. How does that sound?

Twitter Running App - Sneak Peak

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

We’re currently working on implimenting a Twitter Running App that automatically post updates and runnning log entries to your Twitter status. When done you will also have the option to manually tweet running log status changes rather than having them automatically tweeted on Twitter.

Get a sneak peak of the Twitter running app by login to your account and clicking on the Account Settings link. Then go the very bottom of the page and you will see a form to submit your Twitter information. Enter your information and clikc the save changes button. Now when you log another run on your running log or make an update to your running log (mileage or running type) that information will be automatically tweeted on your Twitter account.

Here is an example tweet:

Issues Regarding Mapping Runs Is Fixed!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

There have been reports from some members that they where experiencing an issue with mapping runs, where they would click on the map and the “shoe” marker would jump around to another location other than what they clicked. We have investigated the issue and found that the new Internet Explorer browser (version 8) is the cause of the problem. Internet Explorer 8 has some bugs and issues that cause the Google Maps not to work correctly under all circumstances. Therefore we have developed a work around that will now allow those viewing the website in Internet Explorer 8 to use all features of the site without a hitch.

So go ahead and splurge and map as many runs as you like!

New Shoe Mileage Tracking Feature

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009
We’re are proud to announce a new feature to! You can now track the mileage on your shoes and get notified when they reach a max allotted mileage. This will greatly assist you in making sure you’re shoes are safe, not too worn and let you know when you need to change them out.

With the shoe tracker feature you have the ability to add a shoe on the Your Shoes page, then from there you can go to your running log and when you log a run that shoe will appear in the shoe choice’s drop down box while editing that running log entry. To view the total mileage on your shoes just visit Your Shoes page and you can view each shoe’s details. Also to make things easier, we have added a Shoe Mileage Tool that allows you to quickly add and remove logged running mileage from and to your shoes.

The Shoe Mileage Tool also has select all and deselect all tool buttons that allow you to select/deselect all running entries for a given month that you’re viewing.

When you reach your max allotted mileage for a shoe the shoe tracker feature also will automatically notify you by a popup on your running log page. In addition it conventionally provides you with a link and details about purchasing new shoes. You can change your allotted mileage settings for a shoe on the Your Shoes page. This can be set to any amount of mileage you would like. By default it is set to 300 miles. It’s been suggested that around 300 miles most shoes will need to be changed out. Also if you prefer not to receive popups about shoe mileage you can set it to no popups on the Your Shoes page.

So login to your running log today and start tracking your shoe mileage!

Upcoming New Features To LogThatRun

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

I thought it would be nice to write about some of the new features that we’re planning to release here at We’ve received a lot of great feedback from many members. We love the ideas we guys have come up with, thank you guys!

First we have a feature currently under development, a shoe millage tracker that will allow you to keep track of the millage you put on your shoes - so that you’ll know when it’s time to get a new pair. Next we’ll be working on adding an option for you to switch back and forth between the calendar view for your running log and a grid or table view displaying your logged runs that week. We are also looking in to a way to save multiple runs for one day.

Also some of your feedback we’ve already put in place. One of those things is, once you’ve logged in and go to map a run the map will now start by displaying the location you have in your profile instead of starting at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Do you have any new feature requests or ideas? Let us know we’d love the hear them!

We’re Starting a Weekly eNewsletter

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Hello everyone!

Now that the site is picking up and gaining a wider interest from runners across the globe, I decided it would be nice to send out a weekly eNewsletter that includes running tips, information about upcoming races and updates on the newest features we’re adding.

So it’s official, this is the first weekly eNewsletter! Every week we are going to be sending out 1 newsletter (usually at the beginning of the week). Each newsletter will feature running tips or info on things that are happening on the website then a section on up coming races.

The running tips and info in each newsletter will also be posted on our running blog so that you can post your comments about what we said. We also may add some discussions from the forum area to the newsletter occasionally as well.

For the up coming races, we’ll be added each of those to our race directory. In the newsletter we will include a few of those details and a link back to the race’s page in our directory. Also each race’s page in our directory includes an interactive course map with the full details about the race. Also you can add a comment on each of the races in our directory. So feel free to check those out and post your comments.

If you have any ideas, comments or things you’d like to hear in our newsletter let us know.
